I was just browsing the site and began to wonder about this. As probably a lot of others have, I stumbled acros this site whilst looking for cheap christmas items - I've been using it ever since.
It is only untill a few days ago though, that I actually realized that there are forums for chatting and posting deals into, etc; for weeks I used the site and did not even know this, I simply thought that it was simply about posting and viewing deals (mainly from the main page or the RSS feeds).
I now realize that the deal posting stuff is actually intergrated and woven into the forum and the whole site is really one big forum and the deal posting is in effect, second to it.
I'm probably asking the wrong people (as I'm posting in a forum and you'd have to read this post to answer it - your opinion will be biased), but do you think many people just use the and look for the deals, or that the forums play an inportant part too?
For example, where do you post your comments on a deal - do you do it from looking at the deal on the main page and then from there, or do you do it as a result of browsing the forums - how do you find your deal, main page, forums, rss feeds?
Either way, its a great site - the only critisism is that I'm now spending more money that I should, and on stuff that I do not really need, lol!
